Two key resignations follow another management reassignment this week amid multiple federal investigations into corruption and cover-up at the region’s Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR).
Wisconsin Watchdog has learned that Sherry D. Thompson, chief administrative law judge for SSA’s Region 5 in Chicago, and Assistant Regional Chief Administrative Law Judge John J. Rabaut have announced they will be resigning from their leadership positions at the end of the year.
Gregory Senden, a representative for the government union that represents many SSA employees, sent an email to several staff members Wednesday advising of the changes.
“Hopefully the new leadership that is chosen will be effective and professional, and willing to work with AFGE (American Federation of Government Employees) to improve the morale of ODAR employees and improve service to the public that we serve,” Senden wrote in the email obtained by Wisconsin Watchdog.
Senden advised that Ancheska English-Wilson “is the Acting Regional Attorney, until the position is posted and filled.”
